Mind FixersThe Cure WithinBut when the Freudians overreached, they drove psychiatry into a state of crisis that a new “biological revolution” was meant to alleviate. Harrington shows how little that biological revolution had to do with breakthroughs in science, and why the field has fallen into a state of crisis in our own time.Mind FixersIn focusing particularly on the search for the biological roots of schizophrenia, depression, and bipolar disorder, Harrington underscores the high human stakes for the millions of people who have sought medical answers for their mental suffering. This is not just a story about doctors and scientists, but about countless ordinary people and their loved ones.Mind Fixers

A tale of promising roads that turned out to be dead ends, of treatments that seemed miraculous in their day but barbaric in retrospect, of public-health policies that were born in hope but destined for disaster...Of value to historians of medicine. --Gary Greenberg
The shortcomings of current ideas in the causes and treatments of mental disease are clearly documented. [Harrington's] insights into the social aspects of treatment deserve to be addressed. --Donald F. Calbreath
Masterful...Harrington's grasp of this story and the clarity with which, with limited moralism, she delivers a tale about the 'big picture' of psychiatry and neurology is emblematic of the historian's craft. --Stephen T. Casper
